Hi. I'm working with a device which I communicate with over a USB serial port.

We converse in strings; I send out a command in the form of a string, and it responds in strings. And in response to several of the device's commands, the device returns long XML-format strings.

Currently, I handle everything with plain-vanilla C#, but as a pedagogical exercise, I am eager to get LinQ involved with handling the XML-formatted strings.

Can you help me "get this thing off the ground" by telling me how I should have Linq access and begin processing the XML - formatted strings ?

Thanks for any help you may provide.
