These shortcuts depend on the program you use them in, like editors and such. So, they live in the userland, definitely not in the Linux kernel. Or, maybe, I didn't understand the question?

Thanks for your reply.
Actually i want to know if i want to change the copy shortcut (ctrl + C) to something like (ctrl+M) then how can i change it.As these shortcuts are universally applicable so i think they should reside in kernel coding.

but they are not -- nor are they as universal as you think (they are not used in bash, vi or in X, for example).

Best you tell us where you want to use and reconfigure them and we can tell you if it is possible and, if so, how to do it.

The fact that you want to change them would be a very good reason for them to NOT be in the kernel....
