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();

$Updates = $MadelineProto->messages->sendMedia(silent: $Bool, background: $Bool, clear_draft: $Bool, noforwards: $Bool, update_stickersets_order: $Bool, invert_media: $Bool, peer: $InputPeer, reply_to: $InputReplyTo, media: $InputMedia, message: 'string', reply_markup: $ReplyMarkup, entities: [$MessageEntity, $MessageEntity], parse_mode: 'string', schedule_date: $int, send_as: $InputPeer, );

Usage of reply_markup

You can provide bot API reply_markup objects here.

Return value

If the length of the provided message is bigger than 4096, the message will be split in chunks and the method will be called multiple times, with the same parameters (except for the message), and an array of Updates will be returned instead.

Usage of parse_mode:

Set parse_mode to html to enable HTML parsing of the message.

Set parse_mode to Markdown to enable markown AND html parsing of the message.
