Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/regexp.reference.escape
---

From the manual: "The precise effect of "\cx" is as follows: if "x" is a lower case letter, it is converted to upper case. Then bit 6 of the character (hex 40) is inverted. Thus "\cz" becomes hex 1A, but "\c{" becomes hex 3B, while "\c;" becomes hex 7B."

Doesn't hex(40) refer to the 7th bit of a binary string?

7th bit, yes. It's bit 6 when counting from 0, which is (at least as far as I've seen) how they're normally counted. You know, the same way the 7th element in an array is index 6.
