if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('https://phar.madelineproto.xyz/madeline.php', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline');

$account_Takeout = $MadelineProto->account->initTakeoutSession(['contacts' => Bool, 'message_users' => Bool, 'message_chats' => Bool, 'message_megagroups' => Bool, 'message_channels' => Bool, 'files' => Bool, 'file_max_size' => int, ]);
