Finding DLSIP for Any Module

Prior Nacre V has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This link shows the DLSIP Definition.

On entering The CPAN Search Site, you are presented with a series of links to groups of modules. Following these links, and possibly additional links to sub-groupings, you can locate the module you're after with its DLSIP.

Does anyone know of a more direct route for determining any module's DLSIP?

      Thanks. Having everything on one page will certainly help.

    CPANPLUS gives an API to obtain this information:

    use CPANPLUS::Backend; use strict; + my $cpan = CPANPLUS::Backend->new(); + my $mod = $cpan->module_tree('Term::Cap'); + print $mod->dslip();

    IIRC, you insert the DLSIP when you register (or try to register) a module.

    Assuming that, I'd say you can't possibly get the DLSIP for unregistered modules (which are perhaps half of them?)
