    whole vs all

    I think that my question has already been answered in the forum, but I can't find the thread.
    I'm asking about the usage of whole and all.
    What is the difference between:

    I know all the truth.
    I know the whole truth.

    Can I say "I have been reading the whole day" instead of "I have been reading all day long"

    1 The difference is the word order, not the meaning.
    2 Yes, you can.
