Tell us what’s happening:
i don’t understand why my for loop doesn’t work, can anyone explain :frowning:

Your code so far

function spinalCase(str) {
  // "It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever."
  // --David St. Hubbins
  str = str.replace(/\s/g,"-");
  str = str.replace(/_/g,"-");
  
   for (i=1;i< str.length;i++) // Have no idea why this for loop doesn't work...
  {
    if (90>=str.charCodeAt(i)>=65 && str.charAt(i)===str.charAt(i).toUpperCase() && str.charAt(i-1) !== "-")
      {
        str = [str.slice(0, i), "-",str.slice(i)].join('');
        
      }
    
  }
  
  return str.toLowerCase();
}

spinalCase('AllThe-small Things');

90 >= str.charCodeAt(i) >= 65 evaluates as a single statement, left to right. It’s equivalent to this:

(90 >= str.charCodeAt(i)) >= 65

90 >= str.charCodeAt(i) will evaluate to true or false, which are then coerced to numbers (true becomes 1 and false becomes 0) before being compared with 65. Both 0 and 1 are less than 65, so this comparison will always evaluate to false.

:smile: you are right , thanks man
