Defined in carb/settings/SettingsUtils.h

inline std::string carb::settings::getStringFromItemValueAt(const ISettings *settings, const char *path, size_t index, const std::string &defaultValue = "")

Retrieves a std::string from an array setting key for simplicity.

Typically to retrieve a string value from an array of carb::dictionary::Item objects, ISettings::createStringBufferFromItemValueAt() must be called, but this means that ISettings::destroyStringBuffer() must be called when finished. This function instead returns a std::string.
