Question question about mc file association


Since I'm not the administrator of my locale linux machine, I can not specify the file association for mc in /etc/mc/mc.ext, is there possibility to specify file association from normal user rather than administrator?

Thanks

Tip 1:
Configuration files in home directory override system-wide settings (may be restricted though).
Tip 2:
Mostly every man page has FILES section where you can see what configuretion files are used for given application. Below is a snippet from man mc:
Quote:
/usr/share/mc/mc.ext

The default system-wide extensions file.

~/.mc/bindings

User’s own extension, view configuration and edit configuration
file. They override the contents of the system wide files if
present.
