parsing loginfo

Please point me to documentation on this if it exists, I can't
seem to find what I am looking for on the site.

I want to parse the following info out of each checkin ( currently
I am using "CVSROOT/loginfo" to pass this info ) :

module name
path to file
file name
previous revision
current revision

I can get this all in one string from loginfo using %{sVv} however
if there are spaces in any of the above data, I can't really parse
this string reliably.

I tried passing these variables independently, like %s %V %v and
%{s} %{V} %{v} so my script could just grab then as individual
arguments, but only %s seems to work, the others get printed

I looked at some other loginfo parsing scripts as an example, but
they seem to be parsing the whole string, and I imagine they'd fall
victim to the same thing.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
