I am looking for a (preferably single-word) verb that means "cause to loop/repeat". I will use it in a very technical context, so I don't really have a proper example to give.
So far, I have been using the verb "wind", as in winding an old clock. I am not sure if it actually has such a meaning, though. It seemed similar enough, but I don't feel so comfortable with it now.
Per request, here's an example:
The robot A winds the robot B by asking it to fetch a jar of air from outside the window, repeatedly.
The robot A winds the robot B by asking it to do the following: Fetch a jar of air from outside the window, repeatedly.
This is not the exact way I will be using it but it is very close. The exact use case is with the Turing Machines, and appears after 7 pages of preliminary definitions and examples in my document.
Second edit: I changed the example, the previous one was ambiguous and got interpreted differently than I had intended.
Edit 2.1: To make it crystal clear, I am looking for a verb that makes the robot A in the example do its thing that I called "winding" only once, and then the robot B should respond to that by doing a specific action repeatedly and forever.
