classify(table_name) public

Create a class name from a plural table name like Rails does for table names to models. Note that this returns a string and not a Class (To convert to an actual class follow classify with constantize).

'egg_and_hams'.classify # => "EggAndHam"
'posts'.classify        # => "Post"

Singular names are not handled correctly:

'calculus'.classify     # => "Calculu"

Use camelize with singular words

To make the business example work, use camelize instead of classify:

"business".camelize     # => "Business"
