Left-Handed Words

December 6, 2013

On a standard English keyboard, the letters that a touch-typist strikes with the fingers of the left hand are Q, W, E, R, T on the top row, A, S, D, F, G on the home row, and Z, X, C, V, B on the bottom row. For instance, words like FAST and ZEBRAS are left-handed words; PACKAGE and SOUTH are not.

Your task is to write a program that finds words that can be spelled using only letters that are struck with the fingers of the left hand; perhaps you are writing an exercise for a typing book. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
