    copy('https://phar.madelineproto.xyz/madeline.php', 'madeline.php');
}
include 'madeline.php';

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

$Updates = $MadelineProto->channels->joinChannel(['channel' => InputChannel, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Updates = channels.joinChannel({channel=InputChannel, })
