Variable-length list?

Hi all,

I want to have either a module or a function that inputs a
varying-length list M[[nx]], where nx is a parameter, and accesses all
of its elements.

For example:


If M={3,4} then f would do something like:
For [i=1,i<3,i++,
For [j=1,j<4,j++,

If M={3,4,5} then:
For [i=1,i<3,i++,
For [j=1,j<4,j++,
For [k=1,k<5,j++,

I wonder if this is doable in Mathematica, and/or what would be a way to do it?

Thanks a lot,
