#956 ✓wontfix

Improve the String.camelCase regular expression.

Reported by tvr | August 4th, 2010 @ 07:54 PM | in 2.0 (closed)

String.camelCase doesn't seem to cover a few cases.

Current expression '/-\D/g'
Proposed expression '/-+(.)?/g'

The proposed replace expression was pulled from Prototype's String.camelize as they have nearly an identical implementation as MooTools' String.camelCase. It seems to me that the replace expression should be more inclusive than non-digit characters '\D'. Thoughts?

    The real purpose of this is to map between an IDL attribute and a CSS property. There's no agreed upon standard for this algorithm. The CSSOM specification and Mozilla use hard coded values. WebKit internally uses something comparable to: /-./g

    I'm putting this on hold to keep backwards compatibility. We can change this when/if there's a de facto standard or a particular need to handle these edge cases.
