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');

$contacts_Found = $MadelineProto->contacts->search(['q' => 'string', 'limit' => int, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

contacts_Found ={q='string', limit=int, })
