create 12 month binned averages using shell script

I want to create a 12 month binned or rolling average to help smooth the data. I currently have monthly averages in the file. Since a 12 month rolling average needs 12 months of course, the first 11 rows will not have a binned average. I would prefer to create a separate output file with a 3 column for the binned average next to the corresponding YYYYMM. I could then create a graph showing the monthly data alongside the smoothed binned average.

Shell scripting most commonly means BASH or SH.
you are using ksh.
Change your shebang to #!/bin/bash
Or run the program by specifying bash scriptname.bash

Ok. It worked but I wanted to keep the first 11 rows with only 2 columns instead of deleting them. it would be 3 columns from row 12 and after.
