Hi, All -- -- - -
I occasionally find myself in need of a utility to do case conversion
of people's names, especially when I am converting data from an old
to a new system. This is the first such occasion in PHP.
I know about ucwords() and mb_convert_case(). They do not accommodate
names with "middle" capitalization.
Does anybody have such a utility to share, or know of one posted by
someone "out there" that you have used?
I am not looking for perfection -- I know that such is not possible.
I just want to pick off the easy ones -- Mc, Mac, O', de, de la, van,
vander, van der, d' and others like that. I see some novel attempts
to do parts of this on the PHP ucwords() "User Notes" area, but I bet
someone out there has something more comprehensive. I'd rather not
"roll my own" as I have done in other languages.
I have Googled without success.
