#' @title Convert a value to a string.
#'
#' @description
#' Useful helper for logging.
#' For discrete parameter values always the name of the discrete value is used.
#'
#' @template arg_par_or_set
#' @param x (any)\cr
#'   Value for parameter or value for parameter set. In the latter case it must
#'   be named list. For discrete parameters their values must be used, not their
#'   names.
#' @param show.missing.values (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Display \dQuote{NA} for parameters, which have no setting, because their
#'   requirements are not satisfied (dependent parameters), instead of
#'   displaying nothing? Default is `FALSE`.
#' @param num.format (`character(1)`)\cr
#'   Number format for output of numeric parameters. See the details section of
#'   the manual for [base::sprintf()] for details.
#' @return `character(1)`.
