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

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

$X = $MadelineProto->initConnection(['api_id' => int, 'device_model' => 'string', 'system_version' => 'string', 'app_version' => 'string', 'system_lang_code' => 'string', 'lang_pack' => 'string', 'lang_code' => 'string', 'proxy' => InputClientProxy, 'params' => JSONValue, 'query' => !X, ]);
