Hi anyone help me out how to write reg.expression for the following...

i need to split the names with the delimiter Mr or MR or mr or mR.

public class RegExp {
public static void main(String[] args) {

String testString = "mrstephMRpaulMRRusswehMrKeerDIMRNDIFDF";
String[] re = testString.split(____);
for(String s : re)
{
System.out.println(s);
}
}
}

Thanks,
alex

What have your tried so far? (hint: regular expression patterns have a case insensitive flag)
