remove .nfs and .swp files


I'm very new to Unix and trying to work on a file. But when I try to close the file, a .swp file is being created. And when I try to delete the .swp file, a new .nfs file is created.

-rw-rw-r-- 1 r226124 xyzAPP 11002 2009-09-24 17:50 Split.log

What could be the issue?

I'm unable to work on the original file (ie Split.ctl).

when trying to edit the file, I'm getting the following message
r226124@<host>:266> vi Split.ctl
[6] + Stopped vi Split.ctl

How can I delete the .swp files and the .nfs files.

This looks like more than one edit session is active on the file. Try killing all the things using the file. The fuser command will find the processes using the file. Then kill them all.
You can try to recover stuff using

vi -r Split.ctl
