# Is Underscore(_) Uppercase and so are other special character?

Hi,

I am trying to solve - https://www.freecodecamp.org/challenges/spinal-tap-case, now it seemed easy till i realise that even underscore is treated as upper case , not only that all character like * etc are also upper case , how can i over come this , this is my current code - It is just the start logic but the fact that _ is also upper case is making me confused …

``````
function spinalCase(str) {
var newStr = str.split("");

for(var i = 0; i < newStr.length; i++){
if(newStr[i] === newStr[i].toUpperCase()&& i !== 0){

console.log(i);

}
}
//    newStr = newStr.join("");
//    console.log(newStr);

}
spinalCase("The_Andy_Griffith_Show");
//spinalCase("This Is Spinal Tap");
//spinalCase("thisIsSpinalTap")
``````

;

Ok , i solved it -

``````
function spinalCase(str) {

var newStr = str.split("");
var  res = [];
for(var i = 0; i < newStr.length; i++){
if(newStr[i] === "-"){

}

else if(newStr[i] === "_" || newStr[i] === " "){
res = newStr.splice(i,1,"-");
}
else if(newStr[i] === newStr[i].toLocaleUpperCase() && i !==0 && newStr[i-1] !== "-"){
res = newStr.splice(i,1,"-" + newStr[i].toLowerCase());
}
}

newStr = newStr.join("");
return newStr.toLocaleLowerCase();

}

spinalCase("AllThe-small Things");
