I am a  beginner to emacs . I would like to ask some advices to achieve such a
keybinding problem.

Typing C-c C-e in a buffer in Caml mode sends the current phrase
   (containing the point) to the Caml toplevel, and evaluates it.  I would like
that achieve this by simply type C- downarrow. Would you like to give some
hints to achieve it?

The general thing to do is to find the variable that contains the "hooks" that are called when caml-mode is entered. Supposing the variable is called caml-mode-hook, you can add to it a function that sets C-[down] to the same thing that C-c C-e is set to. It will look something like

(add-hook 'caml-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
             (local-set-key "C-[down]" 

If there are any users of Caml mode on this list, they can give you more a specific tip.

But you would be better off reading the Emacs manual chapter on Customizing Key Bindings.


PS: The Emacs aficionados reading this list might think about why it needs to be this complicated!
