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

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.
$Vector_of_messages_SearchCounter = $MadelineProto->messages->getSearchCounters(peer: InputPeer, top_msg_id: int, filters: [MessagesFilter, MessagesFilter], );
