While it only answers one of your questions...

Hmmm... well, I recall running it on a P3 667MHz with 512 MB of RAM. (SDRAM, I 
believe). It took some time to load, but then was pretty responsive. I can 
warn you that I hardly tried to do anything with it, and eventually did not 
take the course that involved Java programming. It was some time ago, so 
things may have improved or got worse since then, albeit I find it hard to 
believe that they got worse by a substantial amount.

Note that AFAIR, I used Sun's JDK on Linux for running Eclipse. It is highly 
possible that IBM's JDK will be even faster.

There's something by ActiveState (Komodo, I believe). It isn't open-source, 
though and I recall hearing people had trouble with it. It's also possible 
that KDevelop or KDE Studio already support Perl. (albeit last time I checked 
they were C/C++ only). You are talking about running it on Linux, right?
