String Capitilization

How can I capitilize the first character of the first word in a sentence?  I have random numbers working with string arrays making sentences.  I can't figure out how to capitilize the first letter of the first word?  Here's my code to print the strings:

g.drawString( article[a] + " " + noun[b] + " " + verb[c] + " " + preposition[d] + " " + article[e]
                       + " " + noun[f] + ".", 25, yPos );

Try:

char c[1];
c[1] = (char)article[a].substring(1,1) - char("a") + char("A");
String s(c);
s += article[a].substring(2);

g.drawString( s + " " + noun[b] + " " + verb[c] + " " + preposition[d] + " " + article[e]
                           + " " + noun[f] + ".", 25, yPos );

Wouldn't it be better to use the toUpperCase function in String?

g.drawString(article[a].substring(0,1).toUpperCase()+article[a].substring(1)+" "+noun[b]..... etc.

Thank you.  Both of these methods worked, however I liked the second one better because it was a shorter alternative to the first.

imladris,

Yes it would :-)  Looks like I still have some C++ vices in my coding that keep me looking  for increses execution time tricks.

In Java your solution is in fact better.
