Convert first letter of each word capital in Python

In order to do capitalization in a string for each word, you can use an in-built method .title().

Take an example of a string first,

some_text = "Hey there how are you?"

Now let’s see how does this method work.

$ python codespeedy.py

Now take another example,

This time the string contains single quotes

some_text = "Hey I'm from CodeSpeedy. You're doing well right?"

Python code to convert first letter of each word to uppercase in a string that contains quotes

some_text = "Hey I'm from CodeSpeedy. You're doing well right?"
print(some_text.title())

Output:

$ python codespeedy.py
Hey I'M From Codespeedy. You'Re Doing Well Right?

So in order to prevent this problem, we can use strings module.

import string
print(string.capwords("Hey I'm from CodeSpeedy. You're doing well right?"))
