Example of a perl callback with send()

The Cyrus::IMAP perl library describes send() this way:
$client->send(\&callback, \&cbdata, $format, ...);
However, none of the examples I could find uses the callback and
callback data arguments. Does anybody have an example of how
these are used.
I'm designing a perl script that makes several IMAP connections to
the server, to send long-running commands in parallel. In this case,
the script can't block on a send(). It needs to issue all of them
and then poll for results. I'm assuming that a perl callback along
with processoneevent() will make this possible.
