Would you care to elaborate on the "rules" on this 'game' (without us having to guess)?

Just a guess:
Code:
nawk '!FNR%2 {print prev,$NF;print $0,l;next} {prev=$0;l=$NF}' inputFile

The rule might be:
Reverse the order of column 3 in a circular array, then rotate two notches forward.
Just a guess.

Would help to know what programming language should be used and whether there is a better definition of the rule.

Thanks for comments,
sorry for not giving any description,
rule is quite simple:
take value from last column in every odd row and add it as last column in next row,
similarly take value from last column (original without previous adding) in every even row and add to the end of previous row. etc.
I need kshell script.
Thanks

Did the posted 'guess' serve the purpose?
