Converting Apple Lossless to AAC

I've got a bunch of audio files that I suspect are encoded as apple lossless in a .m4a container.

1.) How do I confirm that that's what they are?

2.) How do I convert/transcode these files to AAC? I'd prefer not to install iTunes, but if I must...

I'm on a windows PC, bythby

    Install iTunes (sorry)

    set your cd ripping preferences to whatever bit rate of .AAC you want.

    Drop the apple lossless files into the iTunes window to import them.

    Highlight them all.

    Fiddle around under the menus and you'll find a "make AAC version" or "convert to AAC" or similar wording option. This menu item is dynamic based on your cd ripping preferences, which is why we set those first. it and wait.

    XLD may also be of use.
