A port of John Gruber's title casing script to Ruby. 2008-05-21 Jim Lindley http://jimlindley.com
Original Perl Source: http://daringfireball.net/projects/titlecase/TitleCase.pl
This filter changes all words to Title Caps, and attempts to be clever about uncapitalizing 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'.

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