I would like to initialize a Pointer with some value but get an error. For example;

my $a = Pointer[Str].new('text');

The error thrown:

Default constructor for 'NativeCall::Types::Pointer[Str]' only takes named arguments

The way I can do it now is by creating a CArray and then do a nativecast which is a bit cumbersome. The reason I would like to use Pointers is when there is only one object to point to, not an array. Secondly, for the use of the deref() function to get the value it points to.

Is there another way to solve this or is it a bug in the NativeCall::Types module. I have noticed that thereĀ  are 3 new() methods defined accepting positional arguments.
