- I opened the book from http://www.oberon.ethz.ch/books.html in Firefox on WinXP;
- clicked on the 'Select Tool' in the embedded pdf viewer's toolbar;
- right clicked somewhere in the text;
- chose 'Select All' from the context menu
- pressed <Ctrl-C>
- opened Plugin Oberon
- opened a new Oberon Text 
- pressed <Ctrl-V>

That's it. Should be possible on Linux also?

You get the complete book in Oberon Text format, pretty unreadable though imo because all formatting
(including indentation) is gone.
