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');

$messages_AffectedMessages = $MadelineProto->messages->deleteMessages(['revoke' => Bool, 'id' => [int, int], ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

messages_AffectedMessages = messages.deleteMessages({revoke=Bool, id={int}, })
