I found an API example on the IBM web site that I am going to try and work through.

Basically Id like to take a job pid, find the actual job information, and find the associated spooled file(s).
Once I have that information Id like to work with the data in the spooled files.

Hi Walt,

are there any code examples of how to use QUSLSPL, to obtain a file
handle to the spooled output,
so I can open it, read the data, and then close the spooled file?

QUSLSPL does not return a file handle to anything, it just gives a list of spooled files.

It's analogous to opendir/readdir/closedir, except that instead of reading
files in a filesystem, it reads spooled files.  (Which are not stored in
the standard filesystem like they would be in Unix-like operating systems)

I know how to use the open/close APIs but it's just a matter of finding
the output files.

Yes, that's what QUSLSPL does... it lists the spooled files that are available.

Then you use the "Open Spooled File (QSPOPNSP)", "Get Spooled
File Data (QSPGETSP)"  and "Close Spooled File (QSPCLOSP)" APIs to read
the contents of the spooled file itself.

I'm unclear of which API you want an example of?  In the first paragraph,
you wanted an example of using QUSLSPL to get a file handle, which it does
not do.  In the second example, you state that you already know how to
open/read/close a spooled file, which means you already know how to get a
handle to it?

So what are you looking for?
