Max Non Negative SubArray

Find out the maximum sub-array of non negative numbers from an array.
The sub-array should be continuous. That is, a sub-array created by choosing the second and fourth element and skipping the third element is invalid.

Maximum sub-array is defined in terms of the sum of the elements in the sub-array. Sub-array A is greater than sub-array B if sum(A) > sum(B).

Example:

A : [1, 2, 5, -7, 2, 3]
The two sub-arrays are [1, 2, 5] [2, 3].
The answer is [1, 2, 5] as its sum is larger than [2, 3]

NOTE: If there is a tie, then compare with segment's length and return segment which has maximum length
NOTE 2: If there is still a tie, then return the segment with minimum starting index

NOTE: You only need to implement the given function. Do not read input, instead use the arguments to the function. Do not print the output, instead return values as specified. Still have a doubt? Checkout Sample Codes for more details.
