The following C# snippet shows one use for this method:

IEnumerable<Customer> customersWithoutOrders = (from c in db.Customers  
   where c.Orders.Count == 0  
   select c).ToList();  

db.Customers.DeleteAllOnSubmit(customersWithoutOrders);  
db.SubmitChanges();  

In Visual Basic:

Dim customersWithoutOrders As IEnumerable(Of Customer) = (From c In db.Customers _   
    Where c.Orders.Count = 0 _   
    Select c).ToList()  

db.Customers.DeleteAllOnSubmit(customersWithoutOrders)  
db.SubmitChanges()
