[Haskell-cafe] Language.Perl? (static analysis of Perl code, in Haskell)

I am investigating options for analyzing,
and refactoring, legacy Perl code.

Ideally, the tools would be in a high-level language like Haskell.

I found [Pugs][1] and (related) [Language.Perl5][2]
but both appear dead.

Is there something for Perl that would provide
what [hack][4] provides for PHP, and [typescript][5] for JS?
(Perhaps I should write a Perl to PHP compiler.)

Yes, I know that [Perl is not parseable][3].
