Extract XML Fragment Using Extended VTD-XML

// This example demonstrate how to use extended vtd-xml to extract content out
// of a huge xml document. Notie that the parsing is set to memory mapped mode
// so that the processed file can exceed the size of physical memory.
// unlike standard VTD-XML, getElementFragment() of VTDNavHuge returns a array
// of longs, otherwise, null will be returned.

			VTDNavHuge vnh = vgh.getNav();
			long[] la = vnh.getElementFragment();
			if (la!=null)
			vnh.getXML().writeToFileOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("c:/xml/text2.xml"), la[0], la[1]);
