are there any code examples of how to use QUSLSPL, to obtain a file

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?
