Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection holds Bio::Restriction::Enzyme  
objects, each with its own name().  Using grouped methods like  
'$collection->cutters(6)' will retrieve a new EnzymeCollection  
containing all six-cutters from the original collection.  You should  
use one of the EnzymeCollection accessor methods to retrieve the  
enzyme that you wanted first or iterate through them all.  This works  
for me:

use Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection;
my $all_collection = Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection->new();
my $six_cutter_collection = $all_collection->cutters(6);
for my $enz ($six_cutter_collection->each_enzyme){
    print $enz->name,"\t",$enz->site,"\t",$enz->overhang_seq,"\n";
