    They are different in meaning.

    Re: as long as

    For the use of "if" see https://www.usingenglish.com/article...ditionals.html

    "as long as" expresses time : As long as I live, I shall smoke no more cigarettes OR a condition : You can leave early, as long as you finish the work. It can also be "so long as". Both can be replaced with "provided"
