How do I use a (boolean?) token to reject user input?

I have a program in which a user buys an item at a store. I have the user input the itemName, quantity, unitPrice, and whether it is taxable or not in a String which is tokenized into four parts, delimited by the "|" character.
Example: itemName|quantity|unitPrice|N
The N or n in the fourth token tells whether the purchase is taxable.
How can I use Java to reject the input and display an error message to the user if the fourth token is not input as a "n" or a "N"?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Perhaps you could use:
[QOUTE]

Tests if this string ends with the specified suffix.

of you could use:

if you're into regular expressions...
