Use the title() function to capitalize each word in Python. Python’s Str class provides a function title(), it converts the first character of every word of a given string to upper case
Example how to capitalize each word in Python
Simple example code capitalizes the first character of each word in a string.
txt = 'the brOwn Fox' res = txt.title() print(res)
txt = 'the brOwn Fox' res = " ".join(w.capitalize() for w in txt.split()) # OR use #res = ' '.join(w.upper() + w[1:] for w in s.split()) print(res)
Output: The Brown Fox
Using a custom function:
def capitalize_each_word(input_string): words = input_string.split() capitalized_words = [word.capitalize() for word in words] return ' '.join(capitalized_words) input_string = "hello world" capitalized_string = capitalize_each_word(input_string) print(capitalized_string) # Output: Hello World
In the custom function approach, the
split() method is used to split the input string into a list of words. Then, a list comprehension is used to capitalize each word, and finally, the
join() method is used to combine the capitalized words back into a single string.
