You should be able to find it in the node "Basic Indent" of the Emacs
manual.  Care to tell how you tried to look for it and come you didn't
find it?

Emacs already does that in most modes, but the command to do it is by
default bound to C-j, for which many keyboards lack a key (if you
have a keyboard with a key labeled "LFD", try using it instead of the
Return key).  You could either type Ctrl-j to get what you want, or
you could bind this function to the Return key, by putting this:

(global-set-key "\C-m" 'newline-and-indent)

into your ~/.emacs init file.

Threats?  Not very nice, IMHO.
