[alpine-user] Executing shell command produces nothing on Alpine linux

I am running shell commands inside my Perl script, but it does not work as
expected. I am in a container with Alpine Linux as my base image.

my Perl version v5.24.0.

perl -e 'my $TEST = `ls -al`; print $TEST'

This prints nothing, but works on another system where I have Perl v5.6.1
on Red Hat Linux.
