LaTeX Package : mfirstuc v2.06

Last Modified : 2017-11-14

Author        : Nicola Talbot

This package provides \makefirstuc{<stuff>} which makes the first object of
<stuff> upper case unless <stuff> starts with a control
sequence followed by a non-empty group, in which case the first
object in the group is converted to upper case. Examples:

     \makefirstuc{abc}        -> Abc
     \makefirstuc{\emph{abc}} -> \emph{Abc}
     \makefirstuc{{\'a}bc}    -> \'Abc
     \makefirstuc{\ae bc}     -> \AE bc
     \makefirstuc{{\ae}bc}    -> \AE bc
     \makefirstuc{\ae{}bc}    -> \AE{}bc

The package also provides \capitalisewords{<phrase>} which applies
\makefirstuc to each word in the <phrase>, where the words are
separated by regular spaces. (Exceptions can be made for words that
shouldn't be converted.)

The mfirstuc package was originally bundled with the glossaries


This package comes with a LaTeX2HTML style file mfirstuc.perl which
should be placed in the relevant LaTeX2HTML styles directory, but
note that some commands may not be implemented or may be implemented
in a different way.

mfirstuc – Up­per­case the first let­ter of a word

The pack­age pro­vides com­mands \make­firstuc that up­per­cases the first let­ter in its ar­gu­ment (with a check for a se­man­tic markup com­mand at the start of the ar­gu­ment), and \xmake­firstuc which ex­pands the ar­gu­ment be­fore up­per­cas­ing. It also pro­vides \cap­i­talise­words{phrase} which ap­plies \make­firstuc to each word in the phrase , where the words are sep­a­rated by reg­u­lar spaces. (Ex­cep­tions can be made for words that shouldn't be con­verted.)
