Is there a Matlab built in function that can be used instead of a polyval function. Or any few lines can work similarly like the polyval function because i dont want to use the polyval function.

fnotpolyval = @(p,x)sum(bsxfun(@(x,p)p*x.^(numel(p):-1:1),p',x))
or
fnotpolyval = @(p,x)sum(x'*p,2)'

fval=@(p,x) sum((x.^[length(p)-1:-1:0].*p));
%example
p=[2 4 5 3]; x=2;
result=fval(p,x) % fval is your new function
