When to use access-lists or prefix-lists

Here's a great a bit of info that I pulled from INE's own Brian McGahan that is is worth remembering. Thanks Brian!

Some applications you can use both access-lists and prefix-lists. In general, anytime you are matching a route, like with a route-map for redistribution, a route-map for BGP, or a distribute-list, you should use a prefix-list. This is what they were designed for. An access-list should be used any time you’re trying to match traffic, or with other non-routing related applications.
