TITLE CASE

A port of John Gruber's title casing script to Ruby. 2008-05-21 Jim Lindley http://jimlindley.com

http://github.com/jlindley/titlecase

Original Perl Source: http://daringfireball.net/projects/titlecase/TitleCase.pl

This filter changes all words to Title Caps, and attempts to be clever about *un*capitalizing small words like a/an/the in the input.

The list of "small words" which are not capped comes from the New York Times Manual of Style, plus 'vs' and 'v'.

John Gruber http://daringfireball.net/ 10 May 2008

INSTALL:

Download the tarball for now, will be mirrored to ruby forge shortly.

USAGE

Either create a new instance of TitleClass with the string as an argument, or use the monkeypatched #titlecase method on string objects.

require 'rubygems'
require 'titlecase'
TitleCase.new("my little string").to_s #=> "My Little String"
"a boat, a duck: a bit too much".titlecase #=> "A Boat, a Duck: A Bit Too Much"
