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->stories->editStory(peer: $InputPeer, id: $int, media: $InputMedia, media_areas: [$MediaArea, $MediaArea], caption: 'string', entities: [$MessageEntity, $MessageEntity], parse_mode: 'string', privacy_rules: [$InputPrivacyRule, $InputPrivacyRule], );
