'Linq Examples
'Select names from an array that contain 'a' letter then order them by lenght and then converts the results to uppercase.
Dim names() As String = {"Tom", "Dick", "Harry", "Mary", "Jay"}
Dim query As IEnumerable(Of String) = names.Where(Function(n) n.Contains("a")).OrderBy(Function(n) n.Length).Select(Function(n) n.ToUpper())
For Each name As String In query
Console.Write(name + "|")
'output: JAY|MARY|HARRY|
' the following code will give similar results of the preceding one
Dim names3() As String = {"Tom", "Dick", "Harry", "Mary", "Jay"}
Dim query3 As IEnumerable(Of String) = From n In names3
Where n.Contains("a")
Order By n.Length
Select n.ToUpper() ' Translate each element (project)
For Each name As String In query3
Console.Write(name + "|")
'Get names2's lenght
Dim query2 As IEnumerable(Of Integer) = names.Select(Function(n) n.Length)
For Each length As Integer In query2
Console.Write(length & "|")
'output: 5|7|5|4|3|
'Here we wanted to remove all vowels from a string
Dim query4 As IEnumerable(Of Char) = "Not what you might expect"
query4 = query4.Where(Function(c) c <> "a"c)
query4 = query4.Where(Function(c) c <> "e"c)
query4 = query4.Where(Function(c) c <> "i"c)
query4 = query4.Where(Function(c) c <> "o"c)
query4 = query4.Where(Function(c) c <> "u"c)
For Each c As Char In query4 ' Nt wht y mght xpct
