MadelineProto Example (now async for huge speed and parallelism!):

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

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

// PHP 8+ syntax, use an array on PHP 7.
$Updates = $MadelineProto->channels->createChannel(broadcast: Bool, megagroup: Bool, for_import: Bool, title: 'string', about: 'string', geo_point: InputGeoPoint, address: 'string', ttl_period: int, );
