An extremely obscure tool, VBSP2 appears to have been a BSP/VMF utility and analysis tool, with support for Windows and Mac. It can be found in the bin folder of Dino D-Day.

Syntax

vbsp2 [options] <vmf or bsp file>
Note:VMF files appear to be either unsupported or broken.

Options:

-game
Overrides the VProject.
-info
Spews out CSVs in the BSP's directory containing info on:
General BSP info (i.e. size),
Brushes,
Faces,
BSP lumps,
Planes,
Static props,
Textures used,
Visibility
It also produces a text file containing all entities in the level, and their keyvalues.
-gl
Dumps a .gl file of the map's brushes, for use with glview.
-lump <lump id>
Dumps out the binary contents of the specified BSP lump.

One of the options other than -game MUST be chosen for VBSP2 to operate.
