C, Perl, and Java are the languages I run into the most.

For the best distribution, there is already an active thread open about this, Best linux distribution for developers?

Any mainstream distro can run c, perl and java programms if the necessary libraries for the specific program are available. Also any mainstream distro will come with libc for c programs, perl runtime for perl scrips. I'm not sure about the java virtual Machine. As far as I remember Fedora does not come with it, you have to install on your own.
