We introduce a new programming language for expressing reversibility,
Energy-Efficient Language (Eel), geared toward algorithm design and
implementation. Eel is the first language to take advantage of a partially
reversible computation model, where programs can be composed of both
reversible and irreversible operations. In this model, irreversible operations
cost energy for every bit of information created or destroyed. To
handle programs of varying degrees of reversibility, Eel supports a log stack
to automatically trade energy costs for space costs, and introduces many
powerful control logic operators including protected conditional, general
conditional, protected loops, and general loops. In this paper, we present the
design and compiler for the three language levels of Eel along with an
interpreter to simulate and annotate incurred energy costs of a program.
