As an aside, have you considered running your CDR storage/viewing on a separate machine? You don't have to log CDRs on the same box as you run asterisk.

You can almost certainly do this if you want using the standard string handling functions in $middleware_of_choice, but the lack of indexing on text files will make this *very* slow for search queries etc.. The RAM/CPU requirements associated with loading huge chunks of text data into memory, manipulating them, then displaying the results will likely exceed that of a DB.

Unless you only want a recent call log, you really want to do this in a database.
