funkymonky has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question: (mail and news)

the following method selects a folder $imap->select($folder) When I trace the response from the server, it looks like this:
000E SELECT "INBOX" * FLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen) * OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen \*)] * 3 EXISTS * 0 RECENT * OK [UIDVALIDITY 1030359672] * OK [UIDNEXT 191] 000E OK [READ-WRITE] Completed
Now I want to use this in my program. The function returns a hash reference so I do the following:

This command works perfectly, but the PROBLEM is it does not contain the server response.
QUESTION: How do I extract the server response?
