    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.
