Sure, from the examples in the docs:
https://docs.perl6.org/language/list#Typing

my Int @a = 1, 2, 3; # An Array that contains only Ints
my @b := Array[Int].new(1, 2, 3);
# Same thing, but the variable is not typed

my @b := Array[Int](1, 2, 3); # Rakudo shortcut for the same code

@a[0] = 42; # fine
@a[0] = "foo"; # error: Type check failed in assignment

Thank you!

```

### Force integers in an array?

```
Hi All,

Is there a way to force all the members of an array
to be integers and to error out is a non-integer
is written to one of its cells?

Many thanks,
