See attached input file.

assuming the file perl file is called aceavg.pl or the shell script file is called aceavg.sh and creates an output file called aceavg.txt and I want to called the the script by either

perl aceavg.pl > aceavg.txt

or

sh aceavg.sh > aceavg.txt

I want to use the input file found at /path/ace.txt and simply do 2 things. 1st, sum columns 2-6 into a single column 2. 2nd, I want to create a 3rd column with 12 month rolling binned averages. So the third column won't start until month 12 since 12 data points are needed so rows 1-11 will only have two columns of data and the 3rd column of data begins from row 12. See input file.
ace.txt
