evalf.m v2.0 (Sep, 2009)

Evaluates any function (handle, anonymous, name, full-name) even if not in the MATLAB PATH!

FEVAL does not work correctly with:
a) anonymous functions
b) function specifyed by its full-name
c) functions outside MATLAB's PATH.

This program resolves this problems and adds new functionalities:
d) run a function with a given directory as current, different to the current one (PWD).
e) run an script outside the PATH and getting any variable definition on MATLAB workspace (new, Sep 2009)

Just try:
>> evalf -C:\ ls
to get a list of files on Windows Root.

The file includes many others examples. I tried to make it work on almost all previous MATLAB releases.

Enjoy it!
Any comments or bug reports would be very appreciated!

Seems to no longer work in R2012b. Error from the str2func call.

This is the only way I've found to run a function that is not on Matlab's path. The built-in function run.m does not work with functions, only scripts.
