@subhrakanta,
The difference is that "whole over the world" is not good English, whereas "all over the world" is.

@Tes yeux noirs,
Tes, mebbe Aub meant to write, "the whole world" in which case of course it'd be okay

@subhrakanta,
There is no difference between these two but all over the world seems correct than whole over the world.

@subhrakanta,
I can say "all over the world" is the most correct idiom. Not sure about "whole over the world" , never heard or saw this usage.

@subhrakanta,
"all over the world" is more pleasing to the ear..

@Tes yeux noirs,
The difference is one is correct and the other is incorrect.
