Two samples of code for which the problem is closely related The first problem; return collection => self, OP_REPLY => $OP_REPLY, criteria => %@criteria ); Generates the error; 'Default constructor for 'MongoDB::Cursor' only takes named arguments' The second problem; return self.find-and-modify( $criteria, $projection, :$remove, :$update, :$sort, :$new, :$upsert ); Generates: 'Too many positionals passed; expected 1 to 3 arguments but got 8' The different errors are caused by the order of testing steps done by perl6. The named arguments are converted to or seen as positionals in some way when it is used together with the return statement. To make it work I had to resort to the following. my $c = collection => self, OP_REPLY => $OP_REPLY, criteria => %@criteria ); return $c; and for the second the same way my $h = self.find-and-modify( $criteria, $projection, :$remove, :$update, :$sort, :$new, :$upsert ); return $h; perl6 version 2015.09-346-g0251b52 built on MoarVM version 2015.09-74-gedc44b5
