I want to use TeX to build .pdf file in my program. But TeX Live is too large and I wanna to embed TeX in my little program - it means the TeX should be as small as it can.

I try to sreach in Google, but they tell me to use TeX Live or others. I just want to get a pdfLeX which can only build Plain TeX, no tikz, no helpful package, no help document but just one programme can run - that is enough for me, because I do not want to have part to build pdf is a lot bigger than the main part.

I try to sreach the release bin file of just pdfTeX but I cannot find any useful but big things like TeX Live.

(one more word, I have the idea that use third library to build .pdf file but they are not looking good.)
