Contains the LINQ to XML extension methods.
Assembly: System.Xml.Linq (in System.Xml.Linq.dll)
Most of the LINQ to XML extension methods are axis methods that are used in LINQ queries. The methods in this class operate on collections and return collections. These methods enumerate the source collection, call the appropriate axis method on each item in the collection, and concatenate the results.
The two Remove extension methods are not axis methods, however. These methods remove attributes or nodes from the XML tree.
Note that there is another category of axis methods, implemented in the XElement, XDocument, and XNode classes. These other axis methods operate on a single object, and return a collection of XElement, XAttribute, or XNode objects.
All of the axis extension methods use deferred execution.
