This is exactly the kind of thing my string class works great with. 

It's a dynamic double linked list - and the way its set up - there are three
versions - the simple tracks just pointers, the next has name, value and 
Description ansistrings and I make pretty huge lists with it, and it has
Append, insert, findfirst, findnext, etc. I have an unofficial release on
www.jegas.org and you need to use the compile switch that allows +=

Fpc -Sc  yourprogram.pas   

Worth a shot.
