Name conversion: search terms?

I’m doing some code generation and need to convert from CamelCase to
whatever_this_is_called. Wikipedia has a page for CamelCase but not
underscore separated words.

I’m thinking that someone must have done this already, and got the
edge cases sorted out, so rather than coming up with a wheel with an
iron tyre I’d search… for what? Is there a single correct term
for how we name methods in Ruby?

    Thank you,
    Hugh

Hi,

Ruby on Rails have similar things. You should take a look at Active
Support, and particulary the
ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::String::Inflections class. The
“underscore” method can be used to transform a string from CamelCase to
underscore_seprated_words.

“FooBar”.snake_case #=> “foo_bar”

def snake_case
return self unless self =~ %r/[A-Z]/
self.reverse.scan(%r/[A-Z]+|[^A-Z]*[A-Z]+?/).reverse.map{|word|
word.reverse.downcase}.join ‘_’
end

“foo_bar”.camel_case #=> “FooBar”

def camel_case
return self if self =~ %r/[A-Z]/ and self !~ %r//
words = self.strip.split %r/\s*
+\s*/
words.map!{|w| w.downcase.sub(%r/^./){|c| c.upcase}}
words.join
end

end

Thank you. That’s splendid.
