Appears to me that...

to examine your generator function and its coefficients to determine their
limit. One might consider then deriving a limit function that takes the same
coefficients as the generator function. But this implies no newsgroup can
answer your question without hearing what your generator function is.
E-search the works of one "Michael Barnsley" for lots of fractal fun.
