Okay, okay.

Please use C-h v c-syntactic-indentation RET to find out if the
variable is defined.  If it is, you can do the following:

(setq c-syntactic-indentation nil)

If that doesn't do the trick, then maybe the following works:

(defun pe-c-setup ()
  (setq c-syntactic-indentation nil))
(add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'pe-c-setup)

If the variable doesn't exist, then you need to do something more
elaborate:

(defun pe-c-setup ()
  (local-set-key (kbd "TAB") 'indent-relative)
  (local-set-key (kbd "{") 'self-insert-command))
(add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'pe-c-setup)

Maybe you have to add more local-set-key statements, similar to the
second one, for other characters that don't just insert themselves.

Also, the above was for C mode, use add-hook lines with c++-mode-hook
or java-mode-hook instead of c-mode-hook to get the effect for the
corresponding modes.


I don't understand your comment out the delete key, though.
