```I need to implement a function into my notebook but am having great difficulties even getting started (i'm new to mathematica and programming in general)

The function accepts a 1d array (of variable length) of integers

which will refer to a 2d array of constants, of which all need to be tested against eachother.

for example:

1DArrayVar = {2, 4, 5}

2DArrayCon = {
{a1,b1,c1},
{a2,b2,c2},
{a3,b3,c3},
{a4,b4,c4},
{a5,b5,c5}
}

Function[1DArrayVar]

in this scenario will test:

Do[
Do[
Do[

TEST[2DArrayCon[[2,x]],2DArrayCon[[4,y]],2DArrayCon[[5,z]]]

, {x, Length[DArrayCon[]]
, {y, Length[DArrayCon[]]
, {z, Length[DArrayCon[]]

So basically the problem is that i need a variable amount of nested loops, as the length of 1DArrayVar will always be unknown.

>From some research on the internet i've learned a recursive algorithm might be the solution, but i am completely lost on how to start --

any tips would be really appreciated !
