need [HELP] sum array multiple files

Hi.. I'm very newbie here..

I wonder if somebody can help me..

I have multiple directories with same out file name for each directories..

..and so on..

for ./dirA/out.dat here is the structure content :
1 10 20 30 40
2 50 60 50 10
3 ..
for ./dirB/out.dat the same structure but different data :
1 11 23 40 30
2 20 30 10 50
3 ..
and so on for other files..

What I want to do is to sum the data in the same cell for every files..

so for example above my expected output file is :
1 21 43 70 70
2 70 90 60 60
3 ...
How can I make the script using awk ..? or I should make fortran code..? I have no idea to do both.. Smilie

Thank you in advance..

Best Regards..

typeset -i mTot1 mTot2 mTot3 mTot4
sort */out.dat | while read mKey mVal1 mVal2 mVal3 mVal4; do
  if [[ "${mKey}" != "${mSave}" ]]; then
    if [[ "${mSave}" != "First" ]]; then
      echo ${mSave} ${mTot1} ${mTot2} ${mTot3} ${mTot4}
if [[ "${mSave}" != "First" ]]; then
  echo ${mSave} ${mTot1} ${mTot2} ${mTot3} ${mTot4}

@Shell Life
I was not blaming anyone.
By the way ... my remark was for Agiantz.
