[BioC] Split SFF File with Bioconductor Package

I need to split a big SFF file into a number of small SFF files.
I was able to read in the big SFF file as a big SFFContainer with the function readSFF in the Bioconductor package:R453Plus1Toolbox. I also fond the index to split the big SFFContainer. For example, the index (5,11,17,22,25,29,31,33,37) for the first small SFFContainer.
I couldn't figure out how to extract the (5,11,17,22,25,29,31,33,37)th reads from the big SSFContainer and construct a small SFFContainer and save it as an SFF file. Could you please tell me how to do this part of work?
Thank you very much in advance.
