Typewriter

Words that can be typed by using exactly one set of keys, i.e.
Either
Q W E R T Y U I O P
or
A S D F G H J K L
or
Z X C V B N M

import re

if __name__ == '__main__':
    regex = re.compile(r'^([qwertyuiop]*|[asdfghjkl]*|[zxcvbnm]*)$')
    with open('words.txt', 'r') as fptr:
        for word in fptr:
            if regex.match(word):
                meat = regex.match(word).group(1)
                # Print words with length greater than 7:
                if len(meat) > 7:
                    print('%s (%d)' % (meat, len(meat)))
