By "single commas", do you mean single quotes, eg those in

  --header 'Content-Length: 10950' ?

According to the curl man-page, double quotes should work for those too.

Elsewhere, where you have literal double quotes inside the JSON (if that's
what it is) data strings, you'd probably have to put the whole string inside
outer double quotes and escape the inner ones, eg with the caret character,

--header 'eus-bizkaia-n3-data: { "con": "LROE" ...

might become

--header "eus-bizkaia-n3-data: { ^"con^": ^"LROE^" ..

Whatever programming language you're using may simplify this or make it
more complicated.

Alternatively, I think it might be better if you write all the additional headers
into a temporary file and then specify that file name as a parameter to one
header option. That way you'd be able to see the exact values inside that
file rather than have to try to understand the values disguised by escape

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
