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');

$Updates = $MadelineProto->messages->forwardMessages(['silent' => Bool, 'background' => Bool, 'with_my_score' => Bool, 'grouped' => Bool, 'from_peer' => InputPeer, 'id' => [int, int], 'to_peer' => InputPeer, 'schedule_date' => int, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Updates = messages.forwardMessages({silent=Bool, background=Bool, with_my_score=Bool, grouped=Bool, from_peer=InputPeer, id={int}, to_peer=InputPeer, schedule_date=int, })
