The ucwords() function is a built-in function in PHP and is used to convert the first character of every word in a string to upper-case.
string ucwords ( $string, $separator )
Parameter: This function accepts two parameters out of which first is compulsory and second is optional. Both of the parameters are explained below:
- $string: This is the input string of which you want to convert the first character of every word to uppercase.
- $separator: This is an optional parameter. This parameter specifies a character which will be used a separator for the words in the input string. For example, if the separator character is ‘|’ and the input string is “Hello|world” then it means that the string contains two words “Hello” and “world”.
Return value: This function returns a string with the first character of every word in uppercase.
Input : $str = "Geeks for geeks" ucwords($str) Output: Geeks For Geeks Input : $str = "going BACK he SAW THIS" ucwords($str) Output: Going BACK He SAW THIS

Note: You should not use the character ‘$’ as a separator because any name in PHP that starts with $ is considered as a variable name. So, your program may give an error that variable not found.
