I am trying to prevent the commit of filenames with spaces into the
repository but do not seem to be able to pass any arguments to my script
from the commitinfo file.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have the follwing commitinfo entry and file 

commitinfo includes line : 
	ALL ${CVSROOT}\CVSROOT\commitCheck.pl

and script commitCheck.pl is :
   for( $i = 1; $i < @ARGV; $i++ ) {
     	if ($ARGV[$i] =~ /\s/) {
	   print STDERR "Spaces in file $ARGV[$i]!!\n";
	   exit (1);
