This is my Command and i'm using Mac os,

curl -X POST \
-u "{username}":"{password}" —-header "Content-Type:application/json" --data "{\"input\": {\"text\": \"Turn on the lights\"}, \"context\": {\"conversation_id\": \"1b7b67c0-90ed-45dc-8508-9488bc483d5b\", \"system\": {"dialog_stack":[{"dialog_node":"root"}], \"dialog_turn_counter\": 1, \"dialog_request_counter\": 1}}}" "https://gateway.watsonplatform.net/conversation/api/v1/workspaces/25dfa8a0-0263-471b-8980-317e68c30488/message?version=2016-09-20"

Please help me to solve this issue.

In your —-header option the first character isn’t a normal hyphen (U+002d). Instead it’s an em dash (U+2014). Change it to a normal hyphen and things should work as expected.
