ucfirst

See the current Perl documentation for ucfirst.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


ucfirst - return a string with just the next letter in upper case



ucfirst EXPR

ucfirst



Returns the value of EXPR with the first character uppercased. This is the internal function implementing the \u escape in double-quoted strings. Respects current LC_CTYPE locale if use locale in force. See the perllocale manpage.

If EXPR is omitted, uses $_.

[marto]: hey Corion, good weekend?
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, even though I didn't write any code :)
[Corion]: But at least I have a plan of action to move the site to https, played some (free!) VR games with friends and watched the plans for the next German Perl workshop progress ;)
[Corion]: AltSpace VR is amazingly good - highly polished and with some of the games you get for free what you'd pay EUR 20 or EUR 40 otherwise
