tcpd will just include a list with host names. There is no special file
format. If exim allows you to use external files to list the hosts to
deny access from it should either use the same file format or use a simple
shell script to convert the file.

It's easy to modify a program to use the tcp_wrapper directly. Programs
like the portmapper or sendmail use the tcp_wrapper library for it.
