#' Get By Level (generic)

#' @description 
#' Retrieves actual values based on their \code{level}.
#'     
#' @param input \strong{Signature argument}.
#'    Object containing structure information.
#' @param value \code{\link{character}}.
#'    Level as found in return value of \link[listr]{getStructure}.
#' @param outer \code{\link{logical}}.
#'    \code{TRUE}: use \code{oindex} instead of \code{index} to retrieve the 
#'      outer element values (i.e., outer list structure is preserved);
#'    \code{FALSE}: use \code{index} to retrieve the inner element values
#'      (i.e. outer list structure is not preserved).
#' @param resolve \code{\link{logical}}.
#'    \code{TRUE}: resolve path to basename component as names for return value;
#'    \code{FALSE}: use path as names for return value. 
#' @param strict \code{\link{numeric}}.
