Every time I vim open, I get the standard warning about another user, swap file already exists, abort/quit/.., etc. I've been trying for at least 2 hours, and I'm sure I don't have the file open myself. The machine in question runs RHEL and I'm using putty.
Is there a way to figure out who has my file open? I'm thinking the result will be one of the machine's user ('s names), but it could be an IP address or something else I suppose. I'm also not sure if this question is more appropriate for unix/linux or vi/vim, so apologies if I tried the wrong one first
