Python's str.capitalize(~) method converts the first character of the string to titlecase, and all other characters to lowercase. This means that digraph characters will only have their first letter capitalized.

Parameters

No parameters.

Return value

A new string with the first character of the string converted to titlecase.

Examples

To convert first letter of "hello there. How aRe you?" to titlecase and all other characters to lowercase:

x = "hello there. How aRe you?"
x.capitalize()
'Hello there. how are you?'

Note that the source string x is kept intact and a new string is returned. This can be confirmed if we print x:

hello there. How aRe you?

The original string is unchanged, even after being used with capitalize().
