[fpc-pascal] programmatically creating desktop icons under Linux

This question is specific to a PC running Kubuntu 9.1 64-bit with a 
KDE 4.1 desktop.

I have a large number of PDFs. Their filenames are not meaningful, but 
I do have a list of filename versus contents.

I'd like to be able to read that list and create a bunch of desktop 
icons using the contents as the name of each icon, and where clicking 
on the icons invokes okular to read the PDF. I haven't been able to 
find anything about creating such an icon programmatically from Free 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
