I looked at this link and found exe files which work in windows. But soon I

which is not called by it. Also I saw pdfplatex which refers to pdfTeX. What
is difference between pdfTeX and pdfetex. It looks like their output is

Dear TeX-friends,

I made a compact LaTeX-based TeX-distribution which can be very usable
e.g. for building TeX-based web solutions. GrailTeX is downloadable from


Most interesting features: package-based architecture with dependency
support, the latest pdfeTeX binary (named grailtex) with unstable
patches, Latin Modern Type1 fonts instead of bitmapped Metafont Computer
Modern (EC) files...

There is currently just a minimal documentation on its website.

Any comments are welcomed!

Greetings, Bence
