classify(table_name) public

Creates 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).

classify('ham_and_eggs') # => "HamAndEgg"
classify('posts')        # => "Post"

Singular names are not handled correctly:

classify('calculus')     # => "Calculu"

Use camelize with singular words

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

"business".camelize     # => "Business"
