help on scripting

Below is a function within a script

for FILE in `find $CDCFG -name PROD"*"cfg -exec grep -il file {} \;`
do
cat $FILE > /tmp/$(basename $FILE).tmp
done

I want to list $FILE which contains 3 files and give the user an option to display the required file.

can anyone give me a few idea's.

cheers

If I understand the question correctly, then try
this:

FILELIST=`find $CDCFG -name PROD"*"cfg -exec grep -il file {} \;`
echo "Enter the filename (options are $FILELIST)"
read FILE
cat $FILE > /tmp/basename $FILE.tmp
