MPLAB (free) Plus MPLAB-ICD (<$100) will allow all this plus more on the 16F87x parts, on which you
can do the majority of development work.
MPLAB-ICD uses the 16F87x series on-chip debug functionality to allow breakpoints etc. It works
pretty much like an ICE, only slower, but the amount of code you'll be downloading for 12c50x
functionality will give an assemble/program/run cycle time of a few seconds.
The differences between this part and the 12c50x can mostly be worked round for development - about
the only thing that can get slightly tricky is emulating the wake on pin-change facility.
The ICD will program 16f8X devices but not the 12c50x. The cheapest 'official' microchip programmer
is Picstart Plus, which programs all of their parts. there are certainly others, probably cheaper,
but if you want a guaranteed quick plug & go solution it's fine.
