I am trying to send all the available funds using polkadot.js how does one do that?

I have seen in the polkadot-ui one can purge the sender account or send all available funds and am wondering how can i translate that into code so I don't have little funds leftover and burned due to minimal extrinsic deposits.

You have the balances.transferAll method that you should call with a keep_alive = false so it doesn't leave the existential deposit.
