OpenGL probably wants a zero-terminated string. It works if you add the
code as a literal because string literals are zero-terminated.
string fragString = readText( "Shader.vert" ) ~ '\0';
Alternatively, you can embed the file in you executable:
immutable string fragString = import( "Shader.vert" ); // read at
