As you swap in and out of the IDE, it creates these swap files to make room for the shell. When you exit and return to the IDE, the IDE cleans these files out. If, for some reason, you did not return to the IDE gracefully, then these swap files are not deleted and they take up extra disk space. If you want to delete them, you need to make sure you are not running in the IDE, then you can safely delete them.

The IDE is the environment from which you edit/compile/debug your programs.
