    // Shows how to create a large document using less memory.
    //
    // GcPdf provides two approaches to creating a PDF file:
    // - The usually more convenient approach: you build the document completely first,
    //   adding text, graphics and other elements. Then you call Save() on the document
    //   passing the name of the file, or the stream to save to. This approach allows
    //   to modify the already created content - e.g. you can insert pages anywhere
    //   in the document, or modify the already added pages.
    // - The StartDoc/EndDoc method: with this approach, you provide the stream
    //   to save to at the very beginning, before adding any content to the document,
    //   by calling the StartDoc() method on the document. All content is then written
    //   directly to that stream, and you cannot go back and update the already created pages.
    //   To complete the document you call the EndDoc() method. If you try to perform an
    //   action that is not allowed, an exception will be thrown. While this approach is
    //   somewhat limiting (e.g. Linearized cannot be set to true in this mode), it uses
    //   less memory and may be preferable especially when creating very large documents.
    //
    // This sample demonstrates the StartDoc/EndDoc approach.
    //
    // Essentially the same code, but without using StartDoc/EndDoc, is demonstrated by the
    // LargeDocument2 sample. See also LinearizedPdf.
