Is there a function in R that is similar to polyval in matlab? (y =
polyval(p,x) returns the value of a polynomial of degree n evaluated at x.
The input argument p is a vector of length n+1 whose elements are the
coefficients in descending powers of the polynomial to be evaluated).

I have possibly missed it in the R help files, so please excuse me if I
have. "Polynomial evaluation" yielded no result in a search of help, and the
functions poly() and locpoly() don't seem to be what I am after.
