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

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

// PHP 8+ syntax, use an array on PHP 7.
$Updates = $MadelineProto->contacts->getLocated(background: Bool, geo_point: InputGeoPoint, self_expires: int, );
