How to get a Closing Brace in VIM or VI

Just add the following line to ~/.vimrc

inoremap { {<CR><BS>}<Esc>ko

Now my ~/.vimrc looks like this:

sh-4.2$ cat ~/.vimrc

"**Tab And Indenting Stuff:
"***these 3 tab tips always go together
set expandtab
set shiftwidth=2
set tabstop=2
"***and this makes the tabs work more intuitively:
set smarttab

"***indent automatically
set ai "Auto indent
set si "Smart indet

"**Vim By Default Does Not Highlight Java/C++ Syntax:
"syntax on
inoremap { {<CR><BS>}<Esc>ko
