local $::@numList = @_; # This line is giving Compiler error..
Aside from any consideration of package versus lexical variables, that statement is trying to local-ize a package scalar-array variable named numList (both $ (scalar) and @ (array) sigils are present), but Perl does not know what a scalar-array variable is, nor do I.
A scalar in the main package might be written as $main::numList or with the shorthand $::numList version, or an array might be written @main::numList or @::numList similarly.
