There's (nearly) nothing wrong with your code, only with the compiler ;-)

Rakudo doesn't support list assignment yet (that's where the error
message comes from), and doesn't support returning values either.

A workaround for now is to use arrays instead.

(The thing that's still wrong with your code is that you need a
whitespace after the 'my', otherwise my(...) should be parsed as a
function call).
