    Anyone here know how to write a function in C++ that will cause the characters that a user inputs to be capitalized on the first letter but set all the other characters to lower case?

    Example:
    User input = jErRy
    After function = Jerry

    Would really appreciate some help.

    btw... Man, it's great to be back to the original forum.

    erm this might be better placed in a programming forum but my guess would be use the old upcase command but no idea how to do it only on the first letter.

    www.cprogramming.com is an excellent forum for c and ++ help.

    I don't think they're is a function in the global header files to achieve this but here goes:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <string.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    void fUpper()
     *{
     * *
     * *if ( ::pszInput == "jErRy" )
     * * *{
     * * * *::pszInput = "Jerry"
     * * * *cout << "Input capitalised." << endl;
     * * *}
    
     *}
    
    int main()
     *{
     * *
     * * *string pszInput;
     * * *cout << "Please enter a word." << endl;
     * * *cin >> pszInput;
     * * *cout << "Thanks, it will now be capitalised." << endl;
          fUpper();
    
     * * *return 0;
    
     *}

    Thanks amarjit, you've gotten me off to a start, I suppose I'll post it later to show my progress.



    Sorry it's been to long away from the original forum, I forgot there was a programming forum here...
    Stupid temp forum was horrible.

    Oh yeah I forgot I was gonna post the function when I was done with it.
    I used the idea that ASCII decimal values are 32 points away from each other.

    Here is what I came up with. It works like a champ.

    void ToTitleCase( char ptr[] )
    {
    * * if ( *ptr >=&#39;a&#39; && *ptr <=&#39;z&#39; ) {
    * * * * *ptr -= 32;* * * * * //changes from lower case to upper
    * * }//endif
    * * ptr++;
    * * while ( *ptr ) {
    *&nbsp; if ( *ptr >=&#39;A&#39; && *ptr <=&#39;Z&#39; ) {
    * * * *&nbsp; *ptr += 32;* * * * //changes from upper case to lower
    * * *&nbsp; }//endif
    * * *&nbsp; ptr++;
    * *&nbsp; }//endwh
    }//endfn ToTitleCase
    Believe it or not Amarjit, you actually helped with this more than it seems. You got me looking for the upper and lower headers, then my refence book said something about ASCII, so I took a program that my C++ professor wrote and brought it home. It&#39;s got all the ASCII char values for binary/hex/oct/dec/and chr. It&#39;s really quite cool.
