How to print output of grep

I have attached a code snippet so you can see what I'm doing.

What I have is a directory filled with other directories and files containing .svn and .class.php files.

I need to come up with a way to determine if any of these files are being referenced in any of the other files.
This means I must grep through the files to find the string Filename.class.php but paths containing .svn should be ignored.

My comments indicate exactly my needs. But the code doesn't do exactly what they say. For instance,
set $file=$(ls -R1 |egrep -e '\.class\.php$') only gets the filename and not the directory/filename.

Thanks!
#!/bin/bash
 
cd public_html/dd/
# Get the full path of the file
set $file=$(ls -R1 |egrep -e '\.class\.php$')
 
while [ $file ]
do
	# Ignore .svn directories 
	set $result=$(grep "$file" *.class\.php)
	# Only print resultant files not in a .svn directory
done

Thinking on this a bit, it really does make more sense to get a list of path/file for each file that is not in a .svn directory and that is not found being called in any of the other files within the list.

Perhaps this helps some to figure out how to tackle this problem.
Also, consider that a script like this would be great for any developer who is working on a large project to use as a method to sweep for dead pages/code. :)

whenever i am searching for something specific in linux i use the following:

find - type f -exec grep -H "text here" "{}" \;

So in "text here" you could replace it with ".class.php"

Good Luck.
