http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vcsharp/aa336746.aspx Some sample methods on LINQ This sample uses where to find all pencils that are out of stock.

public void SampleMethod1() 
    List pencils = GetAllPencils();

    var soldOutPencils =
        from p in pencils
        where p.UnitsInStock == 0
        select p;
    Console.WriteLine("Sold out Pencils:");
    foreach (var pencil in soldOutPencils) {
        Console.WriteLine("{0} is sold out!", pencil.PencilName);

Sold out Pencils:
pencil1 is sold out!
pencil2 is sold out!
pencil3 is sold out!
pencil4 is sold out!
pencil5 is sold out!

This sample uses select to produce a sequence of the uppercase and lowercase versions of each word in the original array.
public void SampleMethod2() 
    string[] words = { "hiMasAgAR", "SagAR", "kuTIkuPPala HimaSAGar" };

    var upperLowerWords =
        from w in words
        select new {Upper = w.ToUpper(), Lower = w.ToLower()};

    foreach (var ul in upperLowerWords) {
        Console.WriteLine("Uppercase: {0}, Lowercase: {1}", ul.Upper, ul.Lower);

Uppercase: HIMASAGAR, Lowercase: himasagar
Uppercase: SAGAR, Lowercase: sagar
Uppercase: KUTIKUPPALA HIMASAGAR, Lowercase: kutikuppala himasgar

This sample uses TakeWhile to return elements starting from the beginning of the array until a number is hit that is not less than 6.
public void SampleMethod3() 
    int[] numbers = { 5, 4, 1, 3, 9, 8, 6, 7, 2, 0 };
    var firstNumbersLessThan6 = numbers.TakeWhile(n => n < 6);
    Console.WriteLine("First numbers less than 6:");
    foreach (var n in firstNumbersLessThan6)

First numbers less than 6:

This sample uses group by to partition a list of pens by category.
public void SampleMethod4()
    List pens = GetAllPens();

    var penGroups =
        from p in pens
        group p by p.Category into g
        select new { Category = g.Key, Pens = g };
    Consol.WriteLine(penGroups, 1);
