vi calling template

I want to copy temp files when I make a new file by vi.
For example,
09:32:52 ~/ $ mkdir test
09:33:03 ~/ $ cd test/
09:33:09 ~/test/ $ ls
09:33:16 ~/test/ $ vi test.cpp
09:34:37 ~/test/ $ cat test.cpp
#include <iostream>
int main()

09:34:48 ~/test/ $ vi test.bash
09:35:19 ~/test/ $ cat test.bash

09:35:23 ~/test/ $ vi
09:35:45 ~/test/ $ cat

09:35:50 ~/test/ $

when I make "test.cpp",
I want to do
cp $HOME/.cpp.tmp ./test.cpp

and open test.cpp by vi.
.cpp.tmp is a template file and It contains
#include <iostream>
int main()


Of course I can do this by bash script.
But can I do this by writing something in .vimrc ??

It would be easier to put a function in you .bashrc to do this.
