Hello,
I would like some suggestions on the simplest function/procedure to do the following.
I have a string as follows;

This/is_my/test string.

I need it to be changed to this
This/Is_My/Test String.

Essentially I need to search for all occurences of '/' '_' and spaces, and uppercase the character following.
Hope this makes sense.

end;
