Just to add to this, beware the vendor documentation. In particular, I 
noticed many "examples" posted by vendors that used all kinds of 
notations. Cisco, for example, formally uses /64 in current 
documentation but still has a ton of old docs which use /112 or other 
similar boundaries. Since searches don't always turn up "most current", 
you may find obsolete documentation.
