I don't want to do either averaging or daily to monthly or monthly to yearly
see first daily file has l length is 365(days), second may contains 366 days,
I want to simply merge like this 365+366....so on upto 2012, for daily data 365*27 files around 9855 l length should be,
have you seen ICOADS monthly data ?

As I said, please read up on the "define axis" command in the manual.
You can find it here:
You'll need to decide if you want all data on a daily axis, or all
data on a monthly axis. Once you decide that,
1) define your new axis, covering 1958-2012
2) define a new variable on the new axis, e.g.
let new_montly_data = old_daily_data[gt=my_monthly_time_axis@ave]
3) decide how to deal with duplicate data. Do you want to average
them, or choose daily over monthly?
4) Assuming you want daily data where it is available, combine the
two variables with something like
let my_combined_data = if (new_monthly_data) then \
new_monthly_data else old_monthly_data
