Well, I'm downloading and extracting a file with `curl http://... |
bzcat > test.xml`, but because it's very big, and I maybe haven't got
the time to analyse the whole data, I'm extracting pages from the
beginning, so I press CTRL+C sometime afterwards. Maybe I could extract
pages on-the-fly, with something like `curl http://... | bzcat | java
-jar ExtractArticles but I'm not really familiar with Pipes and so
on :( Probably I would need XMLStreamReader instead of the reader and
buffer input or something like that, but I tried it and failed...

Ok, that's possibly the best thing.

Thank you!
