Hosts.allow allow an IP range

i would like to open a range in my hosts.allow but i don't know how to do it.
i know you can specify a single adress with

ALL: 192.168.0.1

but i would like to have the whole range of

192.168.0.1 to 19.168.0.127

how do i do that in hosts.allow

The syntax of the hosts.allow/hosts.deny files allows subnet declarations to be used, but not a range. In this case the desired IP range is a subnet and you could use:

ALL:  192.168.0.0/255.255.255.128
