keep old files

Hi list,
I am a newbie debian user (switched from RH).
I have faced a strange prob. in woody. whenever I modified any file the 
previous contents is backedup with a *~* sign and the modified one is saved 
with the actual name. like *test.kwd* will be *test.kwd* after modification, 
but there will be an extra *test.kwd~* also.

plz suggest me how to stop the generation of this second back-up file.

thanks in advanced
